Even now I can’t believe how quickly my Aurora Project internship with the Law and Justice Section of the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA) passed. Time flies when you are having fun – and also when you’re busy – two things I happened to be during my internship.

I left Melbourne University with my Bachelor of Arts degree in my hand and a bunch of enthusiasm, yet still unsure how to approach the big scary job market.

As soon as you get off the plane it hits you: air so thick you could cut it with a knife.  Darwin, our closest city to the rest of the world, couldn’t feel more removed from Melbourne where I spend most of my time.

This summer I spent six weeks in Darwin undertaking an Aurora internship at the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA). I can honestly say it’s the best thing that I’ve done since coming to law school.

The extensive publicity for the Aurora Native Title Internship Program around Adelaide Law School meant I was always aware of the Program. So, as a soon-to-be graduate looking for places to gain practical experience in legal issues of a distinct nature, I applied for a legal internship.
